FPGA Connectivity Solutions
Model Number: Nonstreaming transmitter
The Sensor to Image GigE FPGA Core for ALTERA and XILINX FPGA is a solution for camera designers of machine vision components to make use of the proven GigE Vision protocol without the need of implementing this protocol from scratch or to buy third party GigE hardware modules. So the designer is able to focus his work on the device functionality not on connectivity.
This core implements the GEV Control Channel software based in an embedded CPU, without the GEV streaming. This architecture ensures best performance, but also easy adaption to custom vision hardware. Together with a MAC unit, a full solution can be supplied.
Several reference designs for typical passive GEV 1.2 as 2.1 DEVICES like light controller or IEE1588 IO DEVICE are available and demonstrate the usage of the core.They can be by PacketResend and Action implemented in hardware. Supported platforms are ALTERA/INTEL and XILINX FPGAs.
